Seminyak is the stylish region of Bali, where most of the expats gathered to turn the island into their home for a certain period of time. Although apparently resembles, in some aspects, such as shopping and nightlife, with its neighbor area, Kuta, Seminyak is much different. Whether we are talking about a much less crowded beach, luxury hotels aligned on the beach, international cuisine, or numerous boutiques with designer pieces.
Besides all this, Seminyak is where we chose to spend the last few days in Bali, hoping to end the whole journey with an apotetical ending. And it came out a success. The days we stayed there, we had the most beautiful road trips on the island, visited the most remarkable temples, admired a gorgeous waterfall and had some successful shopping sessions. Therefore, the keyword of the Seminyak week was an activity, plenty. For this reason, we chose to retire in a budget-friendly boutique hotel, but also very nice. Let me tell you more about 7 Bidadari Boutique Hotel …
The hotel is located nearby a very large boulevard in Bali, Jl. Sunset Road, the link between the street where the hotel is located and several streets filled with shops and restaurants. 7 Bidadari Boutique Hotel has 32 rooms spread on 2 levels, a restaurant, and a tropical-style swimming pool right in the middle. Staff are very kind and always ready to help with information or accommodation. For example, they gave us information about the surroundings and gave us suggestions about renting a car.
Each room has a king bed or twin beds. Although not very spacious, it’s extremely comfortable and welcoming, being colored in nude shades and decorated with vintage accents (paintings, lighting elements and furniture). You can choose between two types of rooms: deluxe terrace, with direct access to the pool or deluxe balcony, with pool view. I preferred the second option because the view is a priority in my case, absolutely every time.
The floor is tiled so that it does not become uncomfortable even at very high temperatures, and the air conditioning works very well too. The bathroom doesn’t have a bathtub, but it has a separate shower with a glass partition and is sufficiently roomy. Still, a small inconvenience seems to me to be the sink situated inside the room, at the entrance, and not in the bathroom.
The balcony is small, but ideal for enjoying your morning coffee, while looking at the beautiful pool with exotic touches. The transition from the room to it is done through sliding glass doors to have a complete panorama even from the comfort of your bed, but for maximum intimacy, there are blackout drapes.
As I said, it is surrounded by many tropical plants and green grass, which give it a very beautiful and natural look. The palm trees, the perfect turquoise water, and the beach chairs create the ideal setting for some very relaxing days in the privacy of this boutique hotel. I also loved the lights of the pool during the nighttime.
Although we only ate twice there, it was very ok, especially since due to the pool proximity. The furniture goes in the same shades and style as the rooms, just as it should look like a boutique hotel.
